Trump suggested Spain build African Sahara wall to stop migrants, minister says. Ford made her choice. Now she needs to tell her story to the Senate: The prevailing version now holds that mobster Charles Carneglia dissolved the poor man's remains in a barrel of acid in his macabre basement workshop. John Gotti's brother, Gene, is believed to have been among the mob button men who abducted and killed Favara. To this day, the Gotti family has its own blind spot about the wreck, and it has embellished the details to suit its rationalizations of Favara's murder.
But family wordsmith Victoria Gotti, Frank's sister, claims that Favara was drunk and speeding, that he had dragged the victim feet, and then cursed him when he finally stopped. She said Favara also taunted her mother with "smug" grins over the fence. I believe he would be alive today if he had. His clan will pay respects today to John Gotti, who died of cancer in prison in He lies beside son Frank in the Cloister Mausoleum at St.
John Favara was declared legally dead long ago. His widow, Janet, died in Their son, Scott, continues to battle the warped idea that his father deserved Gotti-inspired termination. And today, for the 30th consecutive Father's Day , Scott Favara has no grave to visit. It was a tragic fatal accident. The man and his car were gone for good. Detectives spoke with the Gottis when they returned from Florida on Aug. Police investigated and concluded that the driver had done nothing wrong. This work may further underscore the relative efficacy of targeted income and employment support for low-income parents, particularly those in high-poverty neighborhoods.
Although all youth were able to enjoy the benefits of the program both via benefits to their mothers, as well as their own behavior and achievement gains , our results suggest that the boys in the most at-risk neighborhoods benefited the most. Could this translate into longer-term positive outcomes for these most at-risk boys? Boys are at greater risk for becoming involved in delinquency and crime, and current trends in educational achievement and labor force participation are troubling for many young men, especially those in the most disadvantaged neighborhoods Murry et al.
If targeting resources towards boys in under-resourced neighborhoods translates into large improvements in achievement and behavior for these children, this represents a promising approach to supporting the healthy development of a particularly at-risk population. With current rates of family poverty and job instability alarmingly high due to the worst recession in generations, and major changes in many neighborhoods due to declines in property values and numerous home foreclosures, understanding the dynamics of neighborhood poverty, gender, and family economic circumstance is a critical, policy-relevant, developmental issue.

Youth Development and Neighborhoods We ground our inquiry by considering the development of youth identity and its interaction with the broader societal and environmental context. Experimental employment-based antipoverty policies The effects of neighborhood context may be mitigated when parents are able to increase their resources.
Method Design and Sample We use four random-assignment studies from the Next Generation project, a collaborative research project that utilized data from several random-assignment evaluations of welfare, antipoverty, and employment policies. Table 1 Description of Studies. Jobs First and control group Mandatory employment services; generous earnings supplement; time limits Single parent welfare recipients; New Haven and Manchester, CT 3 years after random assignment Combined a generous earnings disregard allowing families to retain their entire welfare grant as they worked with requirements to participate in employment related activity and a time limit on benefits.
Family Transition Program and control group Mandatory employment services; time limits; expanded child care resources Single parent welfare recipients; Escambia County, FL 4 years after random assignment Instituted a time limit on the receipt of welfare benefits along with requirements to participate in employment related activities and increased resource and referral to child care.
Full MFIP; incentive only; and control group Mandatory employment services; time limits; expanded child care resources Single parent welfare recipients; seven counties in Minnesota 3 years after random assignment Full program combined mandatory employment services and earnings disregards. Allowed families to receive a portion of welfare grant if they worked and paid for child care upfront. Incentives Only included only the financial incentives. New Hope Project 2 Groups: New Hope Program and control group Generous earnings supplement; expanded child care resources Low-income parents looking for work; Milwaukee, WI 2 years and 5 years after random assignment Offered cash supplement and health and child care subsidies contingent on full- time work.
Open in a separate window. Child positive behavior The Positive Behavior Scale PBS , a parent-report measure developed by Polit for the New Chance demonstration, was used in all four programs at the follow-up assessment, and includes items on compliance and self-control e. Grade retention and special education In the follow-up surveys of all four programs, parents were asked whether their child received special education because of a physical, emotional, behavioral or other problems and whether their child had repeated a grade since random assignment.
Parental outcome variables Income Using data from administrative records, the follow-up income measure was created by summing monthly cash assistance AFDC or TANF , food stamp benefits, cash supplement payments provided by the earnings supplement programs, and quarterly earnings in jobs covered by the Unemployment Insurance UI system. Employment Our follow-up employment measure indicates the proportion of the follow-up period that the parent was employed.
Harshness Parental harshness was measured using six survey items that asked the parent how many times in the past week she lost her temper; scolded or yelled at, spanked, or grounded the child; took away privileges from the child; or sent the child to his or her room. Aggravation The parental aggravation used six items indicating the extent to which the mother felt that the child was hard to care for, the mother was angry with the child, the mother felt trapped by the child, or the child does things that really bother the mother.
Warmth Parental warmth was measured using three survey items that asked the parent how many times the child was shown physical affection, praised, and praised to other adults over the past week. Depression Parental depression was assessed using the Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression scale Radloff, ; this is a screening instrument that has been used in many large-scale projects with low-income adults.
Neighborhood poverty status and geocoding process To characterize neighborhood conditions, we geocoded addresses and then matched the census tracts to data from both the and U. Baseline controls To increase the precision of our estimates, we included a set of pre-random-assignment parental and family control measures from administrative data and surveys administered by program staff: Treatment Status For all four welfare-to-work programs included in this study, program participants were assigned at random to the experimental group, where they received mandatory employment services, were subjected to time limits, or received work supports such as earning supplements or child care assistance, or to a control group, where they were not offered any additional program services.
Analysis Procedures We test our hypotheses by estimating ordinary least-squares OLS or logistic regression models in which treatment status is moderated by neighborhood poverty status and child gender. Results Descriptive Statistics In Table 2 , we present means and standard deviations of all baseline demographic variables that serve as controls and independent variables in our study. Table 3 Child Outcome Variables, by Study.

Neighborhood Poverty and Program Impacts Our first research question concerned whether levels of neighborhood poverty moderated welfare program impacts on children. Sensitivity Analyses Poverty measure We chose the neighborhood poverty threshold based on the distribution of this variable across our samples: Family Disadvantage Our basic models control for a large number of baseline family characteristics.
Race and Ethnicity Neighborhood poverty is often linked to neighborhood racial composition in many American communities. Limitations This study is able to utilize a unique data set matching geocoded address data with several large, random assignment policy experiments to examine differential impacts by gender and neighborhood poverty level. Implications Our findings have implications for research and policy.
